A bud and its buddy (above). Spring comes early to the low desert in Arizona. Signs of spring in my yard…
I think this may be a “volunteer” California Pepper Tree. Our neighbor across the street has one that he planted and this one appeared a year or so ago in our yard. They grow fast and large. I’m not sure it’s in a good location to grow very big, though.
We have tons of aloe in our yard.
The bud above is on the pomegranate bush.
We have a huge crop of dandelions right now. I thought the couple of freezes we had this year might wipe them out but there are more than ever. Today it’s raining so they’ll be even more plentiful. I don’t mind a few but they’re out of hand. I don’t like to use toxins, though, because of all the cats. Does anyone know a natural method of getting rid of them…other than actually yanking them out one by one?
Spring is coming. Do you have any signs yet?
